Grand March Against the Persecution on Saturday, June 14
(Clearwisdom.net) The Eastern U.S. Falun Dafa Association and the Global Service Center for Quitting the Chinese Communist Party have just announced that a march against the persecution will be held on Saturday, June 14.
At noon on Saturday, Falun Gong practitioners from all over the world, their supporters, and citizens from all walks will hold a march against the persecution followed by a rally supporting the almost 40 million withdrawals from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). The march and rally will be held in Flushing, New York, and are being organized by the Eastern U.S. Falun Dafa Association and the Global Service Center for Quitting the Chinese Communist Party.
The organizers condemn the CCP for directing overseas spies for inciting attacks of Falun Gong practitioners at locations outside China, most notably in Flushing, New York. They also condemn the CCP for using the attacks to further incite hatred for Falun Gong amongst the people of China, twisting the facts of the events to suit the CCP's propaganda motives, lying to the people of China to distract attention from the CCP's own failings.
Since May 17, the CCP has been directing overseas spies and thugs to attack Falun Gong practitioners at the Service Center for Quitting the Party in Flushing, New York. The CCP also assigned spies to pretend to be Falun Gong practitioners, telling lies to confuse and anger the public. The spies posing as practitioners shouted such things as, "The earthquake was heaven's revenge; the dead deserved it," in order to incite misunderstanding and hatred for Falun Gong. CCP propaganda changed the wording of a Falun Gong banner, which read, "Heavens eliminates the CCP," to "Heaven eliminates China."
In spite of the violent assaults and lies, Falun Gong practitioners have not given in. They have continuously clarified the truth and more and more people have learned the facts about Falun Gong, the persecution in China, and how the CCP has extended the persecution overseas. More and more people have become supportive, and many have protected Falun Gong practitioners from the attackers. Practitioners have also set up four more service centers for quitting the party in Flushing.
The organizers of the parade and rally call upon all people of justice from China and from all over the world to join the parade and rally against the persecution. They also call upon the Chinese people to quit the CCP.
